    Second Hand Transporter - Aberdeen Mod

    Greetings Squeezebox enthusiasts,

    I'm a long time fan of the system ever since I bought my Squeezebox Duet in 2008 from my first salary after graduating from college. Now, me and my family own a host of players: a couple of UE Radios, two Squeezebox Classics, a Boom and - very recently - a silver Logitech Transporter that I bought second hand.

    According to the seller, it was modded by Anthony (?) from Aberdeen Components. However, he could not really tell what exactly has been modded. Opening the case, I could identify a new transformer, a couple of new capacitors and new RCA sockets reading "WBT Germany".
    I've searched for the mod online (including this forum) but cannot find more concrete specifications.

    Does anyone know more about it or can direct me to Anthony to share his specifications? I really think it sounds fantastic (wasn't able to compare it to a "vanilla" transporter side-by-side though) and I'm more than pleased with my purchase.

    Thanks for helping a brother out !

    Cheers,
    Jazzer

    Edit:
    and more here with a reference to Anthony (looks like Aberdeen and Mauimods is/was the same people)

    Plus a few thousand for the ceramic feet.

    Thanks, guys for pointing me to the right direction. It's still a bit fuzzy on the specifics of the mod that I purchased with my Transporter ... and reading up on some threads (especially the hilarious battle between Sean from Slim Devices and Anthony), I begin to believe that there might be more esoteric to these mods than I have anticipated.
    Maybe, I'll get a chance to compare my Transporter side-by-side to an un-modded version.

    Thanks again
